Another team in the hunt, and one that reportedly offered more money, was the Jets of New York – the team Minnesota plays this week.

What would have happened if the Jets had signed Cousins if the Vikings missed out?

Ah, what could have been. These what if scenarios are always fun, but I would say this scenario worked out well for both teams. Cousins has been great in Minnesota, and Sam Darnold looks like the real deal in New York]]>

After a two-game losing streak, New York has strung together impressive back-to-back wins to get to .500. Now, they get a chance to grab their third consecutive victory and their first winning record since Week 1.

We say this every week, but Week 7 might be the Jets’ toughest test yet as the Minnesota Vikings come to MetLife.

Led by Kirk Cousins and a stout defense, the Vikings can attack the Jets from multiple angles. Cousins already has 1,921 passing yards on the year and his two wide receivers are among the best in the league. The defense, though not as impenetrable as last season, is no slouch, either]]>

The win moved the Vikings to 3-2-1 overall, tied for second in the NFC North.

Here’s what USAT wrote about the Vikings.

They scored their first rushing TDs of season Sunday … and we only just learned what we’d been missing with Kirk Cousins’ celebrations.

The Vikings seem to be finally hitting their stride on both ends of the ball after some early struggles defensively early in the season. At the beginning of the season, we thought the Vikings would be a top-five team, but the season is a long one and a lot can change]]>

New York aggressively pursued the quarterback in free agency this past offseason, offering top dollar for Cousins’ services. He, however, opted for Minnesota, prompting the Jets to trade a haul for the third pick in the draft. That pick, of course, turned into Sam Darnold.

On Monday, Darnold said that he was paying close attention to Cousins’ free agency, realizing he could end up wherever the veteran didn’t]]>
